Love Triangles: A Deadly Affair - Candy Montgomery

Season 8, Episode 290,   Jul 24, 2023, 11:00 PM

In this week’s episode, Lorena joins me to discuss another true crime that resulted from a love triangle. Betty Gore was brutally murdered with an axe in the summer of 1980 in her small town of Wylie, Texas.  The community would initially be terrified that a psychotic axe murderer was on the loose.  But the reality would shock them even more when it was discovered a respected and well-liked member of the local church choir had wielded the axe, killing Betty Gore with 41 whacks. 

This is the case of “A Deadly Affair: Candy Montgomery.”
